Need some help to get my build started & my car on the road asap. Got a pretty good deal on a GSR block, B16 head, Type R pistons (USDM) with GSR rods & bearings all assembled & still in plastic. I might be getting my hands on some type r cams as well. My questions are: 1) Are the type R rods any more stout than the gsr or are there any differences? 2) What compression ratio will I yield with that setup. Should be the same as the usdm type r so correct me if i'm wrong but i'm looking at 10.6:1? 3) I was thinking of getting my p28 chipped to run a type r map, will the stock b16 valvetrain be able to handle the revs of a ITR map/cams? 4) Anyone know of reputable machine shops in the new england area that specialize in hondas? I might P&P the head if the price isn't too bad but its hard to find good machine shops around Boston. Thinking of going to trick engineering up in NH. Right now i'm just trying to get my car on the road & trying to work with what I got but maybe next summer when I get a reliable daily driver i'll build for boost. For now, I think i'll be sastified with all motor PMR.
